when i first got my gt the tranny linkage was so sloppy that u couldnt shift into any gear and when u tried it usally wasnt the gear u wanted. so i dropped the tranny and i found the studs that connect the linkage toghter were worn down from so much use and wear i had to weld them up and re drill holes for the cotter pins then also the holes on the linkage bars were also ovaled out so i had to weld those up as well then re-drill , after doing this and re-installing with new clutch since the old one was worn down to the rivits, it shifted like a brand new 2003 mini cooper.

so do you guys sugest that i pull the tranny out and pull it apart and check the linkage in side or try the bolt on the driver side and try to put it in the right gear from that the linkage is bent on the passenger side what do you guys think

check your external linkages first since you dont have to pull the trans to mess with them.

to adjust the side to side movement of the shifter, you adjust the linkage on the drivers side with a nut in the center of the linkage, its a pivot point. to adjust the forward and backward throw of the shifter, you adjust the passenger side linkage by basically bending it to make it longer or shorter.
